Omakase! Miracle Cat-dan (おまかせ!みらくるキャット団, Omakase! Mirakuru Kyatto-dan, "Leave it! To the Miracle Cat Group"), also known as Omakase Mamitasu (おまかせマミタス "Leave it to Mamitas") is a Japanese anime series produced by OLM, Inc. and Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions and aired on NHK in between the variety programs, Tensai Terebi-kun and R no Hōsoku from March 31, 2015 to February 23, 2016. The series is adapted from Neko no Ashiato, an autobiographical essay book by Shoko Nakagawa. The series depicts the slapstick comedy of 10 idiosyncratic cats and the folks in the unusual Nakagawa family.



Part of the main characters, consisting of 10 cats, is based on the fact that Nakagawa owns 10 cats in real life, and she adores one in particular, Mamitas, which is also the name of the series' cat protagonist. While the anime is aimed at children, its production committee stated that "the heartfelt story will remind a wide range of generations of something comforting that they may have forgotten in recent times". The series portrays Nakagawa as a child named Pokomi (also known by her nickname "Pokotan"), with Natsuhiko, who watches over her from heaven. Nakagawa stated that "She never dreamed that the day would come when her precious cat Mamitas would be animated." She watched lots of anime since she was a girl, and learned courage and love from them. She also stated that "She hopes that many children, or even just one, will feel something similar through this anime."

The opening theme is "Neko Boogie" (ネコブギー Cat Boogie) by Shokotan♥Haruomi (Haruomi Hosono and Shoko Nakagawa).
